While away on vacation, I found it easy to stick to my fitness routine with the help of a wake up buddy, scheduled workouts and the burden of alcohol consumption from the night before. Here is what I did:
- Wednesday: Tom Holland’s ACK Fit Bootcamp at Jetties Beach
- Thursday: Interval Run – Warm up 5 mins, Sprint 4 mins, Walk 1 min (repeat 4-1 intervals 8 times)
- Friday: Tom Holland’s ACK Fit Bootcamp at Jetties Beach
- Saturday: Long Run for 1 hour (easy pace)
Having a schedule was the best thing I could have done for myself. I was a little hung over on some of the days but I think getting up and working out actually helped for once.
On Friday night, Maggie and my friend Jon made a delicious seaside Mexican dish with home made fruit salsa, guacamole, and fish tacos! I love fish tacos, especially with a tropical fruit salsa. I was in heaven!
Sadly, I filled up on the fruit salsa. It was made with avocado, mango, papaya, pineapple, cilantro, red onion, tomato and lime. Soooo good! Maggie spent probably 30 minutes just cutting up the fruit alone. I think it was worth it.
Here is my perfectly made taco. You can say I’m somewhat of an architect.
We also celebrated some one’s birthday! Roomie requests funfetti every year for his birthday. He had two bites and was satisfied. This is why I hate naturally skinny boys, ugh. I made him an entire cake and he only had TWO bites. My friend Brooke made some delicious homemade frosting too using real butter, confectioners sugar, milk, vanilla and sprinkles. It was much better than straight outta the can made with lard frosting.
Roomie has never struggled with weight, obviously. (George is not his name, but a nickname, you think I’d really give you his real name? haha) He is the most in tune person with their hunger levels. He stops eating when he’s full and doesn’t eat just because it’s there. He also can drink most people I know under the table. He likes his Budweiser, pasta and pork sausages. If you buy chicken sausage, beware! He is a perfect example of how you don’t have to eat very healthy but eating anything in moderation is perfectly healthy. I obviously don’t really hate roomie, but why is it that so many of us struggle with this simple concept? Is it the pounds of artificial sweetener I’ve had over the course of my life? Is it my female hormones? Is it because of women’s magazines? I really don’t know, but I’d love to find my naturally skinny self again.
My vacation in Nantucket was everything I needed and more. Relaxation. Too much of good things so I can give up those good things for the next few weeks. Sun. Amazing weather. Great friends.
Do you have this love hate relationship with you man or roomie?
